Mark it down on the calendar. This date may be the very first (and almost certainly the only) occasion in which we agree with George Soros on anything. According to a leaked email from the leader of one of Soros’s lefty organization, Soros admitted that one of his many mistakes in life included supporting Barack Obama in the Democrat primary against Hillary Clinton in 2008. He described to his minion that Obama was ‘his greatest disappointment’. We’re not sure whether it’s because Obama hedged on his push for full socialism or that it’s so easily being undone by the Trump administration. Either way, cheers!

Progressive billionaire George Soros says former President Barack Obama is his “greatest disappointment.”
George Soros, an early backer of Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential run, described the former president as “his greatest disappointment,” in an interview with The New York Times published on Tuesday. On the advice of an aide to Soros present during the interview, the open-borders financier made clear his disappointment came on a “professional level.”
According to Soros, the Democrat lawmaker “closed the door” on him after winning the White House. “He made one phone call thanking me for my support, which was meant to last for five minutes, and I engaged him, and he had to spend another three minutes with me, so I dragged it out to eight minutes,” the progressive billionaire recounted to the paper, later adding Obama had a reputation of taking “his supporters for granted.”
Neera Tanden, head of the left-leaning group Center for American Progress, revealed in a May 2012 email to Hillary Clinton that Soros admitted to her that he regretted supporting Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
“I told him I worked for you in the primaries and he said he’s been impressed that he can always call/meet with you on an issue of policy and said he hasn’t met with the President ever (though I thought he had),” wrote Tanden.“He then said he regretted his decision in the primary – he likes to admit mistakes when he makes them and that was one of them.”
